Changing Admins on my laptop

I was given my son’s used laptop where he was the administrator.  Somehow he removed himself and I have ended up with two accounts on the same laptop, but only one has Admin privileges.  I need to switch the admin status to the OTHER user account, but
it doesn’t show up when I try to change admins.  How do I get this silly thing to let me change admin status to the OTHER account, please?  I’ve got software on the first account that won’t update using the second account.
